website banner with links

 1:26 am on Feb 22, 2007 (gmt 0)

I made a website banner with 3 clickable links using fireworks.
When I preview in internet exploer it works. But I cant figure out how to attach it so my links work.

Hello Seasnake, and welcome to the forums.

If the banner is one big image, an image map [w3schools.com] might do what you need. Or, you might slice the image into several pieces and then place each of the individual pieces inside their own anchor tag.

An image map is what I need but I am really new at this part and am very lost at trying that.

here is link to my banner if it helps: <url removed>

That page I linked to has a link to "Try it yourself demos" where you can play around with the code on the left, then click and see the results of your changes on the right. It's a good way to learn.

What you are doing is defining your clickable hot spots with a <map> element, and then applying that map to your <img> element as an attribute.

Ok I got it to work on that demo page. If I copy and paste the codeing should it work?

What should be the first and last thing in the code.....Just to make sure IM doing this right. Thanks again guys

Glad to hear it. I personally hate figuring out those map coordinates, so I do understand the challenge.
